“The Outhouse The Film 1985-1997”. In the mid-1980s outside this college town, home of the Kansas Jayhawks, punk rock history was being made in the middle of a cornfield. Where the pavement turned to gravel, in a small, primitive cinder block building, bands like Fugazi, the Melvins, Rollins Band, Gwar, the Circle Jerks, Body Count, Social Distortion, Bad Brains, White Zombie, Descendents, Sonic Youth, Green Day, Fishbone, the Meat Puppets, Helmet and Nirvana played to all-ages crowds, a raucous scene of misfits and anarchists on the margins of youth culture. This was The Outhouse. Small, dark and sometimes dangerous, it quickly gained a reputation as a haven for the bands other venues were afraid of, and the kids who loved them.
Including interviews from the bands, the people who attended the shows, the neighbors , the cops, all involved. Live footage , photos, database of flyers.

After surviving and enjoying the hell out of day one it was back to the Plaza to start off day two catching Noise which was great because they were awesome on the big stage the day before. After melting a bit by the pool it was time to head over to the festival and get things going.
Negative Nancys were first up on the stage and like I have said many times it is great getting to see bands that I have never had a chance to see or are new to me. Loved being able to check them out and I hope they make it to AZ sometime soon. Be Like Max were up next and these dudes know how to work a crowd with their Ska/Punk sound and the singers desire to get as close to the crowd as possible. Nothing gets a crowd going like that kind of thing. Night Birds took the stage next and kept that energy going, these guys are so good live, seriously I hope to catch them again in the near future. If you get a chance to then be sure you do.
After a great day one of festival and club shows we were ready for day two to get rollin! The Objex started the day off with Felony Melony and her underwear getting the gathering crowd ready for the show, great live band.
Lost In Society were up next to keep things moving with their brand of alt/punk followed by another great band La Plebe from San Francisco, this band has a great following and got the first real pit of the day going.
Couple of weeks ago was the 2nd Annual Halloween Bash and the show was not to be missed! Unfortunately, we did miss the first night at The Underground, so maybe someone can fill us in on how it went? The 2nd night at the Yucca was a great time and we got to see every band play and take plenty of pics to post.
